How to Play Online Slots Effectively

We’ve already looked at online slots in some detail in Our Ultimate Slot Game Guide so if you haven’t already checked it out then you can do so here. However, for this guide, we will be looking at some of the other things that you might encounter when you play slots on Lucky Cow Bingo.

We have a fine range of games available so if you’re looking to take a break from bingo and try your luck at some of our games this then this will be the guide for you.

Choose Your Platform

There is little point in playing online slots from a device that you are not comfortable with. The good news is that most of our slot games are cross-platform friendly meaning that they are optimised for almost any modern device. This means that you can basically play from any platform but which one should you choose?

  • PC, Laptop or MacBook – For serious slot players, choosing a desktop computer or laptop is a good move as these robust devices will offer the greatest stability when playing games. You are less likely to be disconnected or for your device to run out of battery. Consider this the safe option for those who want to gamble big.
  • Mobile Phone – Not all of us like to sit at home and spin the reels. Some players enjoy playing online slots while they are out and about and a modern smartphone is an effective way to play while on the move. All you need is an active Lucky Cow Bingo account and either a WiFi connection or some mobile data to access the games.
  • Tablet – More and more players are choosing to play slots from a tablet and these devices offer a nice balance between mobile functionality and solid gameplay. The size of screen makes for a more immersive experience than a smartphone but you are not as restricted as you are with a PC or laptop. Arguably, the best all-round choice for slot players. 

Understand the RTP

It is important that players understand that you can never overcome the house edge. Every slot game has its own house edge and return to player and UK online slots players should understand that no matter how you play a slot game, you can never get past the house edge.

Once you have accepted this you can begin to devise a strategy based on the factors in a game that you can control or at least have an influence on. You can begin by looking at some online slots that offer higher returns to the player than others. Here are some games that have great returns to the player:

  • Aloha! Cluster Pays – A game that takes you out to the Pacific Islands with an RTP of 96.42% and some bonus features too enjoy as well.
  • Jack & the Beanstalk – Based on the famous Fairytale, this slot offers players plenty of free spins and a return to the player of 96.30%.
  • Shaman’s Dream – This game offers a spiritual journey based on Native American culture and it offers an RTP of a respectable 95.44%. 

Different Betting Strategies for Different Players

One thing that you can certainly control as a UK online slots player is the betting options that are available on your games of choice. First of all, consider your budget and then you can begin to look at the betting options available on the various online slots UK games that you can find on Lucky Cow Bingo.

For example, you can spin our Eyecon games from as little as a penny whereas some of the NetEnt and Playson games will accept wagers from around 25p so be sure to check the available betting options before you begin to play. Of course, you can also mix it up as you play by placing different bets or by adjusting your paylines. 

Mix it Up!

Some players will settle on a game that they love such as Fluffy Favourites or Starburst but try to play as many games as possible so that you can enjoy a variety of online slots with a variety of features. You never know, you might just hit the jackpot on a game that you wouldn’t have expected to do well at so be sure to have a good scan around our lobby and try out more than one UK online slots game.

Knowledge is Power

If you are to take anything away from our slots guide it would be that understanding your game completely will allow you to play it in the most effective way possible. Furthermore, it is important to gamble responsibly so be sure to read up on responsible gambling practice and also how to stay safe online.
